This slow cooker chicken recipe is the world’s EASIEST slow cooker recipe.  I’m not lying.  The easiest peasiest slow cooker recipe. ever.  And…it’s delicious.

My mom makes this slow cooker chicken dish and I seriously crave it every time I go to visit.  How funny is it that I request a meal that takes minutes when I don’t have to cook?  I don’t know what it is – but this dish tastes so good out of my mom’s slow cooker!  It also makes me feel like I’m at home.

How to Make Your Own Slow Cooker Chicken Recipe:

Here’s what you’ll need for your slow cooker chicken – a few chicken breasts, 2 cans of cream of chicken, and one packet of chicken gravy mix.  That’s all kids!

Spray your slow cooker with a little non-stick spray.  Place chicken breasts inside and sprinkle with a little s and p.

Sprinkle with gravy mix.

Cover with cream of chicken.

Set your slow cooker to low and cook for 4-5 hours.  Serve over rice…or mashed potatoes if you prefer.  I like to set my rice cooker on delay so that the rice is cooked the same time the chicken is – so it really is a no fuss meal when we come home from a busy day.  Before serving shred or cut chicken into bite sized pieces and return to gravy.

    1. Mine is cooking right now for the last 2-1/2 hours. But I tastes it and it’s extremely salty. What should I do ?

      1. Hi Cherie,

        Mine has never turned out salty – but if you can always dilute with a cup of milk or an extra can of cream of chicken.


  1. I use to cook this in a skillet with broccoli added to it can I do the broc gain? I also use to put mixed vegetables in it. Hummy meal.
